Summer Events – Come & Support the Artists
We’re looking forward to a busy month of Festival Fringe events and summer performances by artists we’re thrilled to be supporting in various ways.
Sean Logan’s First Fringe Show – Full Spectrum
Sean is a talented keyboardist with a wealth of different piano styles at his fingertips, who finds himself somewhere on the autism spectrum. With unerring insight into his own neuro-diverse mind and a powerful need to communicate, he has put together his own show combining musical exuberance with hilarious and thoughtful musings on the need for wider autism awareness. Sean’s show never strays towards worthiness but blends pithy raconteurism with keyboard pyrotechnics that take your breath away. Check out his music here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTCp_9HSwlQ
